Candied Grapefruit Peels
I keep my leftover peels in the freezer until I have enough to candy.
- 3 whole grapefruit peels (presumably halved)
- 1 c. sugar
- ½ c. water
Boil peels in cold water whole and drain them, twice. Cut them into strips. Boil the strips six more times, starting with cold water each time.
Dissolve sugar in ½ c. water on heat. Cook peels slowly in the water until only 2 T. syrup remains.
Roll in sugar and cool on a greased cookie sheet.
You can do this with (four) oranges, but I prefer grapefruit.
